Military Bio
1965-68 US Army Infantry morter team leader,; 1968 went to Army Aviation School, Ft Rucker, Al. 1968-69 RVN: Helicopter Air Crew ( Hueys ). Also spent 5 years as a recruiter, now retired from the Army.

TOD 1988-1990: Bruce explains: " I guess you would say that my position was unique. I had hands on with all the main actors, and worked directly with each director of each episode. I was also very involved on aviation days involving the helicopter and the crew. ( military aspects )
In addition, I actually took part in various episodes
I had to keep in mind what the veteran would see, but also focus on what the camera would pick up. Blending the two was a challenge.

What was so interesting about my role for two years, was the never knowing what the next request would be. From doing a double for Ramon, jumping into the chopper, or doing a scene for a guest actor, who could not return for a re-shoot of a specific scene. (Navy Seal episode ).

I was the assistent technical advisor season 2 & 3. 1988-90. and I had the opportunity to actually tech advise two episodes on my own. In the photo of me with Stephen: I doubled for the actor in a re-take of a scene going through bamboo. Stephen and Terry were in the scene. Malcolm Jamal Warner.. ("The Volunteer"). We really had a great week together. I did everyhing from tech advise to double work to semi-stunt work in the helicopter."

Bruce will relate some of his "TOD" stories from working on the set.
